Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Hot Tuna Question (non-Dead)

Hey, I was listening to Sirius Blues today and heard a new Jorma blues song. When it was done the dj said that Hot Tuna did some blues albums.
I have never listened to Hot Tuna, but I really was enjoying that Jorma song. Can anyone direct me towards some good Hot Tuna blues? And are there any Hot Tuna torrents around?
Thanking you in advance.

Peace.
aj

except for their metal years 74-77 Hot Tuna play almost nothing but acoustic blues. Jorma is regarded as one of THE premier masters of finger picking blues. Hands down I'd start with their first album recorded at the New Orleans house in Berkeley in 1970.

As far as torrents - no way. Jorma has put the smackdown on recording or any electronic downloading or torrents awhile back. Apparently the motivation was a run in with an entitled fan mixed with wanting to be able to own his own art. Can't blame him but it does make what's already out there harder to get.

I have a fairly sizeable collection on tape and a few years back started building my CD collection. I'd be happy to send some your way. It'd take me a week to get started as I have some CD's I have to get out first. email me

Hey Johnny, thanks for the info. I was able to find a couple of songs here and there. It's really good music. I enjoy it quite a bit. I sent you an email yesterday.

The HotTunatunes.com site is pretty good. I signed up for the e-mail alerts and every once in a blue moon they put up a free DL, lots of Live DLs for purchase.

Check out the fist, self titled, Tuna album. Jorma and Jack along with Will scarlet on Harmonica doin' a lot of acoustic blues. Blues has been the basis of the Tuna repertoire since the beginning. Burgers is another personal favorite of mine, that features a lot of Blues, this time with Papa John Creach on the Fiddle. All the tuna Albums feature blues, everything from the mellow acoustic stuff to power rock Blues.

As noted before, check out the early Hot Tuna, particularly the acoustic albums. As a side note, I would recommend a listen to Jorma's QUAH, not really bluesy, but one of my all-timers. Quality acoustic guitar with Tom Hobson. Just wanted to throw it in if you are enjoying acoustic Hot Tuna. Jorma also has a good site with concert downloads (pay for play).
